Nationals.Champ.Trophy.jpgTwo Divisions Offered
Two divisions (Gold and Silver) for each age group (to crown two different champions) will be offered. NTBA will not allow teams to choose which division they will play in.  Pool play record will determine your division and thus each team will truly be placed in their correct talent level for bracket play.  The top half of the teams will be placed in the Gold Bracket and the bottom half will be placed in the Silver Bracket. There must be a minimum of 8 teams to have two different divisions.

Great awards will be given to both the champion and runner-up for each age group. Both the Gold and Silver divisions will receive the same awards. Team and invidual awards will be given out.
